Whole-wheat Sourdough - First Post!

Hey, everyone!

My name is Renata and I've been reading TFL for a long time, always thinking about being a part of the community. And now it's the time for it. I want to learn more about sourdough bread and improve my technique.


This one is my regular whole-wheat sourdough. I wasn't happy with the scoring in this one, the loaf was underproofed. But the flavor and texture were nice.

White flour                                                  70%

Whole-wheat flour                                  30%

Water                                                             65%

Salt                                                                    2% 

Mature 100% sourdough starter        25%

Hi, Renata, and welcome to TFL!

The bread looks great to me, i don't see it being underproofed, though. It may be over proofed , but i can't tell without a crumb Photo. I like your circle scoring pattern by the way, neatly done!

Thank you for your comment, Khalid!

I thought the bread was underproofed because of the cracks on the bottom. Unfortunately I don't have a crumb photo or a bottom photo to share. I'll remember that for the next ones.
